Scrappy Rainbow Challenge - New Project

So many fantastic rainbow projects are going on this year. Angela is offering a free rainbow pattern, and there are so many weekly link ups showing projects with fun blocks - cows, birds, rabbits, stars, dresdens, cats... an amazing and creative array of ideas. All of a sudden my RSC projects were boring to me. And because I had come down with a serious case of Startitis, you just know I had to start a new Rainbow Scrap project.


I decided to start a scrappy sprouts quilt. 
You can find the free block pattern here.My garden is a total washout this year, so I am going to grow fabric sprouts instead. This is the first block for this project and I have a few ideas of things I might try with future blocks.
I also made 4 blue Alamo Stars to add to the ongoing collection. Hop over to SoScrappy and see what the quilters are sewing with their blue scraps.

  1. Pretty blocks. I had not seen the sprouts blocks before. A great way to use up some stash and will make an interesting quilt.

  2. As to your garden it sounds as if you are getting too much rain? I have flowers and tomatoes whose leaves are turning yellow and heavy rain predicted for the day ( again )

    Yes you do have startitis, lol...I saw the other new one the other day : )

  4. Very cute blocks. And I think the startitis is an epidemic in the quilt world!

  10. this is why I love the color challenge... all the ideas and different projects being done. I end up wanting to do most of them. Now I want to make your little stars but they look very fiddly.

  12. You really do have a case of startitis. Great start to a new quilt. You have really finished off a lot lately. Starting something new only seems fair.

  13. I always love your scrappy little stars. Now I'll also be able to look forward to your sprouts. They're going to make a wonderful quilt!
    It makes perfect sense to start another quilt. Though I say that as I'm trying to start only two...

  14. Looks like you're growing stars! I've branched out from my original RSC plans too. I'm generally pretty good at avoiding new projects but sometimes the fabric fairy leads us down unexpected paths!
